Returned from congo brazza to rsa, my eft eye is not syncronised with right eye. Images split when looking nown right. Scan: no stroke/tumors. ?

Eye movers: Not sure what rsa means but your eye problem is most likely a disorder in which means an eye muscle in one eye is not functioning well, possibly because a nerve to that muscle malfunctions. Double vision on downgaze can be seen in nerve damage near the brainstem from a variety of causes but because the nerve involved is so small, even powerful scanners may be unable to detect them. See eye doc 1st. ...Read more

What should my peak flow "ranges" be? Ex. Red green yellow zone?  5ft 4in male 16yo Has RAD.

Mgt: The best peak flow using your meter is your personal best. The zones are used to guide your treatment. The information is partial but around 350 is expected for your height. If you upload your asthma action plan to a virtual EMR in box consult, I can take a look. Generally, the red zone indicates a hospital visit to the ED or calling 911, and this is when you are in extreme distress and at 50% PF ...Read more

I developed a blind/ gray spot in my left eye on Wednesday, no headache, blind spot 3 days now. I get waves of nausea 3-4 times a day no vomit yet?

Sounds serious: something like a retinal detachment could do this. You really need to be seen by an opthalmologist who can look at the back of your eye with a slit lamp. Call your local ED and see whether they have one or could get an eye doctor in to see you if you need it. Good luck! ...Read more
